Yesterday an album came out that I cannot wait to get my hands on from a band bursting forth from San Antonio, Texas. Loud Is The Night is the debut release from Hacienda a band of three brothers: Abraham Villanueva (piano), Jaime Villanueva (drums) and Rene Villanueva (bass) and their cousin, Dante Scwebel (guitar). All four family members take a turn with vocals melding together with such grace and adroitness that they are already earning praise and comparisons to The Beach Boys and the Beatles. The fact that they are touring with Dr. Dog as we speak does not hurt them either. Alive Naturalsound Records is the label behind the band but before the boys made it that far their six song demo found its way into the hands of none other than Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys which led to them recording in Dan's studio in Akron, Ohio. Not bad at all for a band fresh on the scene. I am expecting good things from them and from what I have heard off of their myspace page I am already incredibly excited to pick up the album. Check all of their currently announced tour dates below.
